Well, I obviously never saw him back in your day lol, but I've seen him twice with Jack, and they are both still outstanding. Keep in mind, it will not be like an old '72 Hot Tuna show. Early IS better for Tuna as well, but they can still bring it. If you like the music, I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy the show. I think you'll be very happy if you end up going. So go rock out WT!! I'm sure you're past due :-)

edit: In my haste, I failed to notice the words "solo gig." Here's a fairly new song you might hear:

Barry Mitterhoff (mandolin player) has played with him often recently, but not sure about this current tour. You'll definitely here some of the old classics too. I think the set lists might look fairly similar to these:

I also just saw jerlouvis' post about Mitterhoff, so it sounds like there is a good chance you will see him. In which case, it will be even further from the classic Hot Tuna sound. BUT, it's still amazing music.

Haven't seen him since the mid-80's, so I'm no help. I think it was Little Sense that posted about the Beacon (?) shows last year for Hot Tuna and had favorable things to say about the same.

T'WAS me.I've seen Jorma solo,w Jack acoustic and w/ either a drummer and harmonica player still acoustic.Now we get to the electric. Yes the older Tuna were a tad better only because of where I saw them and generally they did marathon shows and when they said they'd be back and back they came . I do like Barry and his little guitars and mandolin fills.I really like when G.E. Smith joins in as 2nd lead and when you see them all smiling you know they are just locked in.Just as we discussed many times before generally there are curfews in every city and town so there are limits to their playing time.As for the Beacon shows I try to go every year missed this past weekend but was there for Jorma's 70th birthday gig. Many friends walked on and stayed for the night w/ the only break was to bring out a b-cake shaped as
a Les Paul.The guest from who I can remember were Pete Sears on piano,Steve Earle electric guitar, the Bass player from the Allman Bros.and Bob Weir who did a couple w/ a great Paint my Masterpiece.There were others and on the 1st night Warren Haynes joined in.If your an east coaster and want to see them in 2 really comfortable venues then go see them either at the Beacon or Count Basie Theaters.

weren't me.

I have not seen Jorma Solo since the 80's at the Hopewell Junction General Store. Jorma with a guitar sitting in a chair up on a table in the middle of a room with maybe 30 people there. unplugged. A very nice "show". He took off his shirt and showed us his art work. The man is an ink canvas for sure.

Any forumites going (or want to)?. Let me know.
